Great but lacking the verve of the originals
7 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

Like everybody, I too found "Fosse" to be a really amazing evening of dance. I loved it on stage and the DVD is as perfect and complete a collection of Bob Fosse's choreography as one is likely to get. His creativity is greatly missed and a collection of his works such as this is a terrific legacy.

Since everybody agrees with Fosse's brilliance, let me voice two minor complaints about the DVD.

One: What's up with Ben Vereen? I know the show is something of a triumph after his accident, but was it necessary for the director to allow him to be so sloppy? In lieu of precision or even aptitude, he takes a clue from the song "Razzle Dazzle" and hams his routines up with crowd pleasing schtick and non-stop jabbering.

Two: I invite anybody who really loved the numbers in this show to rent the movies "Sweet Charity" "The Pajama Game" and "Cabaret" and then tell me if the dancers in those films kind of make the "Fosse" dancers look like they are giving us the "matinee" version.

Realistically, a movie is shot over months and the numbers can be redone to perfection. A stage show is an exhausting 2 hours plus. Still, the Rich Man's Frug and Steam Heat numbers in "Fosse" look like they are in slow motion.

The problem is I'm old enough to have seen almost all of these numbers in their original incarnations (Liza minnelli's "I Gotcha" and Gwen Verdon's "Hot Honey Rag" remain standouts in my memory) and so like an old curmudgeon, I can't help but find the modern incarnations lacking.

There... now, can we talk about Ann Reinking's Morticia look?
